House for Rent in Clintonville
Tina Thonnings is a former Simply Living member and Time Bank participant before she moved to Cleveland to help care for her 88 year old mother. She is looking for someone to rent her house, where she has cultivated a number of edibles: elderberry, raspberry, apples, Siberian pea shrub, and a lot of other greenery and flowers. Tina hopes to find someone who loves the land and gardening. The tenants who lived there for 5 years have moved so the 3 BR house is available now. Tina can be reached at 440-351-1742 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Craigslist HERE.
